Leading Lady: Princess Letizia of Spain

{Two Chic Leading Ladies: Princess Letizia of Spain and Carla Bruni Sarkozy of France}

I have long been intrigued by the royal families of Europe. From my obsession with Princess Diana (and Prince William) in my early teens to my interest in the Tudor dynasty to a modern-day admiration for the ever-stylish Queen Rania of Jordan, I find the royals fascinating. For the past few years, it is Princess Letizia of Spain who has been on my radar. Her marriage to Prince Felipe was not without scandal as she was a journalist and divorcée prior to becoming a royal. Several years later, the Prince and Princess of Asturias have what seems to be a strong marriage, two beautiful daughters, Leonor and Sofia, and Letizia seems to turn heads everywhere she goes. She tends to dress in a classic, conservative way. She is a royal figurehead, after all, but she infuses every look with chic, youthful touches that make her overall look quite modern and polished.

Are you a fan of Princess Letizia’s style? Is there a particular princess, queen, or first lady whose style you admire?
